Three Players keep ever-present record at UK Open
Three players will keep their ever present records for the UK Open which takes place this weekend at Butlins in Minehead as the list continues to get whittled down over the years.
James Wade, who is a two-time UK Open winner, is the main name in this group. Steve Beaton and Wayne Jones are the other players who have always been present during the tournament known by many as the FA Cup of Darts.
Jones has a best run of the Quarter-Finals during the first one back in 2003 and he repeated this performance back in 2008. In 2004, Beaton reached the semi-finals.
Terry Jenkins and Alex Roy among others were also part of this exclusive club up to 2018 with Jenkins retiring and the latter not getting through the Riley's Qualifiers since then.
Adrian Lewis is the only player who has only missed one edition of the tournament. He only missed the first one back in 2003 and despite not being a part of this elite club will be competing for the seventeenth time.
